Ok, here's the deal. I think you all know I turned to the affiliates as a way to get some funding for the site. The problem with the old affiliate setup was that it took extreme amounts of work and there were tons of glitches. Ultimately, it just didn't seem like it was worth all the work. And as you know I dropped the idea.

Well... I just found a way to not only make it easier to maintain and setup, but also a way to offer even better affiliate sites. A company basically runs the program for us. They take 25% of any commissions we generate but once setup, it's just much easier for me. I'll be doing a new affiliates page with links to many of the best retail sites online. Like before, you click the banner and if a purchase is made, the club gets some credit. Unlike before, there is way less hassle for me so I think this is the way to go.

Also, if there's a site or sites you like to shop at, make a post in this thread and let me know the site name and I'll try to add it.

Hopefully I'll have everything in place in the next few days.


Important

For the affiliate program to work:

1. You must allow cookies and have javascript enabled.
2. You need to turn off any ad blocking software.
3. You have to click an affiliate link or banner on EC first.
4. Once you're at a merchant's site you can't click any other (different site) link during that "session".
5. Items that were previously stored in your cart (lke at Amazon) don't get credited; only new items clicked during your current "session".

Not following the above "rules" will cause the sale to not be credited to EC.

I see you got some of my favorites back.
I like the ease of it being readily available. Hopefully everyone will get in the practice of using it.

Damnn mad.gif I see you have crutchfield which is great but I'm about to buy a $250 item that only sonic electronix has. I'll probably buy it in a week, any chance you'd be able to get them?

Excited to hear about this, Mitch. Can't wait to see which affiliates come back, especially with Christmas shopping around the corner.

What page did you bookmark, Nolan? confused-scratchhead3.gif

Guys and gals, give me the names of some online sites you like to shop at and I'll see if they're on the program.

Advance Auto

Those are my only buying sites I use. Everything else I go to the brick and mortar store and get myself.

goodpost.gif What he said. I buy my parts online through the first 2, and will probably buy some Christmas presents through the last one (that will, however, have to wait until November - when the Christmas fund, aka my unused vacation time, gets paid out).
